SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode I will read from the book of Matthew and talk about one of Jesus' most famous sermon. I am not a preacher so bear with me. I will discuss how an ancient teaching still has relevance in our world and what we can get or how we can apply these truths of the bible in our lives. I will not give an esoteric reading of this word, but will try with practicality to address how the beatitudes can have meaning for us now
Our new series centres in on Jesus' famous sermon where He reveals God's heart to a hungry crowd. This week, we look at what Jesus chose to open His sermon with: the Beatitudes. How do we find and pursue happiness? How do we live a life worth living? What's God's heart towards us? Take a listen and find out...
The Sermon on the Mount is probably the most famous sermon ever preached. This week, our broadcast will feature a message on the Beatitudes, the first few verses of this well-known sermon. What does it mean to be poor in spirit? How does one hunger and thirst after righteousness? Join us this week to hear our host, Kevin Thompson answer these questions and much more.
This week will begin a nine part series on the beatitudes. What does 'blessed' really mean? What does it mean to be 'poor in spirit'? Today's study we will look deeper into these words that Jesus spoke and what it means to us in today's comtemporary world.

“The Beatitudes tells us what our Attitude should Be”
The Sermon on the Mount covers several different topics. If we were to summarize the Sermon on the Mount in a single sentence, it would be something like this: How to live a life that is dedicated to and pleasing to God, free from hypocrisy, full of love and grace, full of wisdom and discernment. Each of the "blessed' statements describes a person who puts God and other's interest above his or her own interest. We cannot be blessed if we live selfishly.
The beatitudes don’t show man how to be saved, but rather describe the characteristics of one who has been saved.
Come and join us in the comfort of you home.

St. Simeon the Stylite - As a thirteen-year-old shepherd of Sisan, Turkey, Simeon heard a Gospel reading of the Beatitudes that greatly affected him. Entering a nearly monastery, he learned all the Psalms by heart and began to manifest the extraordinary spirit of self-denial that was to become a hallmark of his spirituality. Thereafter Simeon lived as a hermit. In the year 423 he imposed on himself the unusual mortification of living atop a pillar only a few feet in diameter and about ten feet high. Later a much taller pillar over sixty-five feet high was built for him. The local bishops and abbots tested his virtue by commanding him to come down from the pillar, a command they immediately rescinded after the hermit demonstrated his humble willingness to obey them. One bishop even brought him Holy Communion. Simeon devoted himself to prayer, but also gave exhortations twice daily to those who gathered around the pillar to hear him. His words won the conversion of pagans in the audience. Simeon would urge his listeners to pray for the salvation of souls. Following his mother’s death, he offered particularly fervent prayers for her.
Hello Everybody it's PK, I'm going back to the Blogtalk Format with new branding, shows and content. Tonight discussing the beatitudes, the sermon on the mount in Matthew's Gospel, and the Sermon on the Plain in Luke's. What really is being said, what insights is Jesus teaching us about the Kingdom of God, the prophetic implications, what do the variations in these two passages have to do with spiritual realms and rulers, and what is being lost in the english translation. Lots of ground to cover, hang on, its going to be a bumpy ride....
I will be reading a portin of Matthew 5.....
The Beginning of the Sermon on the Mount
5 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,  for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Join us as we continue our Walk to The Kingdom
We take a close, fresh look at what is perhaps the most famous sermon of all history, the speech by Jesus Christ known as The Sermon on the Mount.
Due to time constraints, we'll narrow our field of examination and focus on the introductory statements, known as The Beatitudes, or The Blessed Be's, the 8 Blissful States of Being.
Someone recently said that while it's sad to see the 10 Commandments removed from schools and public places, the Sermon on the Mount is so radical, it would never be posted publicly.
President Obama said, in a 2006 speech, in justifying not using the Bible as a basis for politics, that if the Sermon on the Mount was government policy, "so radical that it's doubtful that our own Defense Department would survive its application." Later he said the economy couldn't survive without it.
Why is this sermon of Jesus so controversial? Is it possible to live according to its ideas and demands? Are they hyperbole, exaggerations, ideals expressed in super extreme language just to be memorable? Or are they challenging us to strive for the perfection that is God Himself?
Why would Jesus praise these qualities if they were unattainable or unsustainable? Will He give us the power and wisdom we need to implement such lofty ideals?
If Jesus said "Blessed be..." various types of people, how can we start to be such people in our practical, daily lives?
